Favorite Fitness & Wellness Gifts 2018
Two words: buttery soft.
That’s what Athleta’s amazing Powervita fabric feels like. These are seriously the MOST COMFORTABLE leggings ever and make the perfect gift for any lady who loves to move. Plus, they have pockets on each leg that can fit her phone while she works out. The best part is, the pockets are perfectly designed so you can’t really tell that they are there.
For those who like to take bubble baths, a bathtub caddy is a complete game-changer. I absolutely love this thing and so many of you ask about it when I post pictures of it on Instagram. It makes it easy to read a book, it's got a built-in wine glass holder, or it can hold a mug of tea like you see here. It also has plenty of room for a small plate-- I'm not ashamed to admit that I love snacking while taking a bath.
You can expand the sides so that it fits the width of your tub. The exact model you see here is sold out on Amazon, but this one here looks almost identical.
3. Fré Skincare
Designed specifically for women who work out, Fré skincare products help achieve a post-sweat glow. They help prevent breakouts, dehydration, and signs of aging. Plus, they smell so good! Get her the starter set, which includes a travel-sized hydrating facial cleanser, a moisturizer with SPF 30, and a replenishing serum. I also highly recommend the Detox Me mask.

For your spirit junkie friend, gift her some inspiration with this this gorgeous deck from best-selling author, Gabrielle Bernstein. This deck has 52 cards that each contain inspiring messages related to strength, healing, uncertainty, and manifesting energy. Each one has a unique water-colored design that make them perfect props for Instagram photos.
Soul Cycle is more than just a workout class. It’s like a workout, therapy session and dance party all in one. If she’s into fitness, chances are she loves SoulCycle. Since SoulCycle is a bet expensive and they don’t offer any memberships, surprise her with a gift card so she can take a class without worrying about her wallet. Pro tip: look up the cost of a class at her local studio before purchasing the gift card. Most classes are around $35 each.
Oder an online gift card here.
Gift her a colorful workout outfit from Outdoor Voices! Outdoor Voices makes some of the prettiest and best quality leggings out there. For more info, check out my full review of them here.
With a kit, you can pick out a sports bra and matching pair of leggings for a discounted price of $95. If you don’t know her size, you can always get her a gift card so she can pick something out herself.
Fun fact, I actually received this as a gift last christmas (thanks, sis!). So, I can say from personal experience that essential oil diffusers make great gifts.
This oil diffuser is so relaxing- the scents are soothing and I love the changing colored light. In the picture you see it lit up blue, but every few seconds it changes into the next color of the rainbow.
Get this for anyone on your list! There are many different oil diffusers out there, but I like the InnoGear and I have the 500ml size. It is a great price, especially compared to other brands out there. See below for the oils that I recommend to use with it.
To go with the diffuser, I highly recommend getting this starter set of essential oils. This way the person you are giving it to can try out several different scents, so you don’t need to stress about finding ones that he or she likes. This pack comes with eucalyptus (personal fave), lavender, sweet orange, lemongrass (smells just like Fruitloops lol), Tea tree, and peppermint. This set is very affordable and comes in a convenient box to store them in.
10. Palo Santo Stick and 11. Capri Blue Candle
For my birthday last year, my friend Carrie gave me 2 palo santo sticks which was one of my favorite gifts I've ever received. Palo santo is an aromatic wood that is used for cleansing and purifying the air.
To use it, you ignite it using a candle and let it burn for 30 seconds to a minute. AND GUYS, IT SMELLS SO GOOD. It smells woodsy with hints of lemon and mint which makes for a perfectly calming smell. Palo santo sticks make the perfect gift because they are inexpensive, yet can be enjoyed for a long time.
My friend got mine from a boutique, but you can find similar ones here.
To light the palo santo, I usually use my all-time favorite candle, which is Volcano from Capri Blue. Candles from Capri Blue not only smell amazing, but their jars are so pretty too. Anyone who loves candles will want one of these.
Well, that concludes my gift guide for fitness and wellness items! I hope you enjoyed reading it and let me know if you gift any of these items for loved ones on your list!
